Can't change browser's interface language fully

Hi,

I am in the Netherlands and by default, the Firefox that is downloaded from the main page is in Dutch. I dislike having my applications in Dutch so I tend to set them to English at the earliest opportunity but Firefox seems to be stuck somewhere halfway in between. Here's what I did/tried: - First downloaded the regular Firefox, set it up, changed the language to English in settings and went on setting up. After a number of tweaks and addon installs I restarted the browser. - The browser is now in what I would call Dunglish; the settings page and various other things are in English, but the menubar and various other standard controls are not, they are still in Dutch. - I went into about:config and changed the intl.locale.requested value to only say En-US, before it had NL tacked onto the end of that. No change. - I downloaded the language pack addon and restarted the browser. No change. - I downloaded the US version of Firefox and installed it on top of the other, Dutch, version. No change.

I'd really rather not remove my profile entirely and start from scratch as I've been working on setting it up just the way I like it for half a day now and I'd rather not redo all that. What can I do? So to summarize, I know of the language-specific browser version and installed it without results, I know of the article describing how to use Firefox in another language, I know of the language packs and I know of the intl.locale.requested variable already. None of these solutions have solved the problem. Thanks a lot for reading and for any help you can provide.

Firefox's display language settings are not applying. I've set them to english, but it's still displaying everything in another language.

Menus on Firefox itself are displaying in my native language, when I've set them to English.

I've uninstalled all language packs that aren't English, even removed other languages in Windows settings to make sure Firefox displays menus in the language I want, but none of it worked. Already checked about:config and removed any traces of other languages. The settings page itself and other Mozilla webpages are all displaying in the correct language, but the application itself is not.

It started doing this after the most recent update, was working fine before. Only explanation is Firefox is using my location to set a language and completely ignoring my language settings. Should I just wait for it to be fixed?

Firefox won't start after re-install

My Virusscanner (AVG Internet Security Free) gave me a message; it said that the language plug in wasn't reliable, and needed to be removed. So, I did…

But after I removed it; Firefox doesn't work anymore, when I open the browser, All I can see is a white screen with red letters:

"<window <="" ^"="" id="main-window" p=""></window>

See attached image for example.

I deleted Firefox, and re-installled it, but, this didn't help. Still the same problem. How can I solve this? Also tried to restart my laptop, but this doesn't help.

Some menus in the wrong language

I have the US English language pack and dictionary installed and they are updated. However, when I access some menus or look at some items (e.g. when I go to help and look at 'About Firefox'), they are in the wrong language (in this case, Thai). I have already downloaded the US English version and installed it, but that has not solved the problem. I also tried fiddling around with the locale, but that hasn't seem to have done anything, although I'm not very technical so I might just be fiddling with the wrong things. Could anyone lend a hand? Thank you very much.

In the enterprise software I use I need to be able to see the dates in Australian and not US format. Mostly this is a 'regional setting' that is done on the web browser. Mozilla used to have this option but can I find it now?...NO! I have had to change my browser to Microsoft Edge (yuk!) until you are able to fix this problem.
